Week 44

This week was great. We did pretty much the same old thing-going around, trying to get people to let us in to say a prayer. We had divisions with the zone leaders in their area. I was great, especially since we had a stroganoff pizza at night 😋

We are also working on having a house and district shirt made, both of which I did the drawings for (the pictures are down below). Robson is doing great. He doesn't have any problems with the commandments. He gives us a ride even though he is unemployed and his gas is about empty. And he was at church before we were this Sunday. We got there at 8:35 😶. He just needs to associate the feelings he feels with the Spirit and an answer. Unfortunately, we weren't able to teach Emerson this week and he wasn't at church, but we will pass by there on Tuesday. We also had another surprise. This Sunday, one of our other investigators, Mateus, came to church so we will also be teaching him this week.

As for the daily life of a missionary, we wake up at 6:30 am, eat, exercise, and get ready for the day. We do personal gospel study from 8:30 to 9:30 am.  Then, we leave the house to go talk to everyone and clap on doors to see if people are interested in a prayer or a message. We usually eat lunch with a member and if we have appointments to teach other people, we go. During the day, we choose a time to do companionship study and language study. We generally have a 30 minute break at 5:30 to eat and rest and we work until we have to be home, which is 9:30 pm. So that is pretty much my average day.

It is good to hear how you guys are doing. As for Audrey's call, I am stoked!!!! Brazil is awesome!!!!!! (A friend Nathan went to school with in Eugene, Oregon whose family also moved to Utah was called to the Brazil Porto Alegre mission.)

Well, you guys have a great week and I will write you next week.
I love you all soooooo much.
